Artificial intelligence and machine learning for early detection and diagnosis of colorectal cancer in sub-Saharan Africa

Colorectal cancer (CRC) was once considered a rare disease in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), but decades of globalisation has changed this narrative. Currently, CRC is the fifth most common cancer in SSA, and while CRC incidence and mortality are decreasing in some high-income countries, rates in SSA are on the rise. Herein, we discuss how AI/ML tools could be leveraged to conduct population-based surveillance and improve the early diagnosis and prognosis of CRC in SSA.
